Niger state Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello has appealed to employers of labour to stop rejecting corps members those posted to them for their primary assignment.
He warned that state government will no longer tolerate rejections of corps members by any government establishment or organisation.
He spoke on Monday at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Batch ‘B’ Stream II National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation Course in Niger State at Paiko, in Paikoro Local Government area.
Closing the camp, Governor Sani Bello said, “Let me also appeal to the employers of the corps members that government will not tolerate rejections of corps members from any organization, even though we are aware of the economic realities in the country.”
The governor assured the corps members of government readiness to give priority attention to their welfare at all times and directed Chairmen of local government councils to ensure that NYSC committees are functional at the grassroots levels.
The governor, who was kitted in the full uniform of a corps member, also directed the Commissioner for Youth and Sports Development, Alhjai Musa Bosso and Secretary to the state Government (SSG) Hon. Isah Ladan, to ensure that welfare of those posted to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) are adequately taken care off.
He then charged the Corps members to join hands with state government to ensure the elevation of the standard of living of the rural communities where some of them will be posted by embarking on viable community development projects that are of immediate need to the people and the community.
Niger state NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Theresa Ibukun Arokoyo, said 80 per cent of corps members are posted to serve in the rural areas, especially to schools to teach.
She appealed to school principal and head teachers to organise induction courses for the Corps members in order to acquaint them with the rudiments of teaching.
The state coordinator was full of praises to Governor Sani Bello’s commitment to the completion of the scheme’s permanent orientation camp.
Over 2,500 corps members participated in the 3-week orientation course.
